Rainfall and its spatiotemporal variation are essential for many operational and research applications in Kenya. However, the existing meteorological infrastructure in Kenya is poorly suited for adequate rainfall monitoring. Here, we present the commercial microwave link (CML) data from Kenya and highlight the opportunity that lies in the combination of CMLs and MSG data for rainfall monitoring in Kenya.
